Our company will be holding a 3K/6K/12K Fun Run-Fund Raising activity on December 6, 2008 at McKinley Hill. I haven’t decided yet on which races to participate this December so I signed up for the 12K run.
As part of the marketing campaign of our company’s FUNd Run to entice more employees to participate, a runner is randomly pick from the sign-up list to be featured on the weekly office digest. A female runner was featured last week and the organizing group wanted a male runner this week. After coming back from training, I got the email that I was the lucky guy. I was asked to share my personal story on running and to give my best running photos. The office digest came out this afternoon and has the link to featured runner of the week page.
“I got into running only last March 2008. I gained weight after my onshore stint and wanted to try other ways of losing weight aside from going to the gym. I started running 5K distance at first and I very much enjoyed it. Soon, I was joining every races whether in UP, the Fort or Alabang and I started blogging my running experiences. I recently completed my longest run – a 25K distance via the New Balance Power Race in Clark and I am looking forward in completing my first full marathon next year. Joining the Accenture FUNd Run for the second time is an opportunity for me to do what I love and to share my running experiences with Accenture co-workers.”
